Month: March 2018

One Rise Cinnamon Rolls

I can hardly believe that it is almost April!  Time to think about Easter breakfast and these One Rise Cinnamon Rolls are the perfect solution.  You know time flies when you get older.  As of today we only have 65 days until my Tales offically graduates.  I still think of her being a sassy 5 […] Read more…

Blackberry Crumble Bars

After the Lemon Pound Cake I posted earlier in the month, I decided that I needed to keep the fruit theme going with these Blackberry Crumble Bars.  Today is the third day of Spring Break for us and although the weather is much better than last week…it could still use some improvement.  My Tales and […] Read more…

Easter Decoration Inspiration

I am so excited!!  For a couple of years my mom has had a really cool three tier tray that she decorates for the holidays.  For nearly that long I have been looking for one that I think will work in my house.  I guess I am picky but I finally found this one {Emerson […] Read more…

Easy Basketball Cupcake Toppers

March Madness is upon us!!  While I normally wouldn’t pay much attention to the games, I decided that a cute cupcake topper was necessary.  My Darb also has money on the line, so it has been a regular on our television.  I still don’t know much about the whole bracket thing…I only know what teams […] Read more…

Soft Oatmeal Scotchie Cookies

Today is National Oatmeal Cookie Day, but lets get real for a hot minute.  All that really means is that I have an excuse to make…another cookie {I know…like I really need one}.  Most of you already know that I am obsessed with cookies!  But I have an extra sweet spot for Soft Oatmeal Scotchie […] Read more…

Lemon Pound Cake w/Lemon Glaze

A few weeks ago my sweet cousin Lindsey asked for a lemon recipe and who am I to deny such a delicious request?  Besides, lemons always get me in the mood for Spring.  I am hoping that somehow I can telepathically turn the weather into sunshine and keep it that way for longer than one […] Read more…

Rainbow Pancakes

One of the things that is sad about having kids who are in college is that I don’t have an excuse to make “fun food” anymore.  Heart cinnamon rolls on Valentine’s Day, candy corn pizza for Halloween, I was always trying to make everyday food, extra fun around the holidays and although my step daughters […] Read more…

Shepard’s Pie Skillet

I can hardly believe that we are almost through our first week in March!  Yikes!  St. Patrick’s Day and Easter are in the next month and that means I have A LOT to do.   Thankfully, the holidays are when I feel the most inspired.  There is always an ongoing list of ideas on my […] Read more…

42 things I have learned in 42 years…

It is hard for me to believe it but tomorrow…I am 42.  I don’t feel 42…unless of course…I move my body and then the aches and pains of growing older set in.  There is also the fact that my kids will be 19 and 21 this year…so ya, I guess I am 42.  All in […] Read more…
